10:03 pm
cyclon hit the coastal city of barrier but the problem is just of there now suffering very bad floods of all of the rain that fell here following the cycle is now right on through the country into that area and in that place then people stuck on the views of house is also stuck in trees away think rescued by helicopters if it's available mozambique does have some assistance from neighboring south africa to buy into the military and humanitarian assistance happen as an area of fifty square kilometers in that district is completely submerged in water a lot of people waiting for some kind of help when in isolated parts of zimbabwe those injured during the storm a struggling to get help. in the eastern district of timony money which was completely cost soft voice like they need i. some of the patients affected by the floods in china money are now being flown to this makeshift health center where
10:04 pm
they are being seen by medical staff and this is one of them this patient from what we see commits injuries he has less aeration his face arms and legs he's complaining that he may have a broken wing that's why they're trying to fix it temporarily until he can get to a proper medical facility and get treated to properly others are going to be brought to have been brought to these tents you see here they will be seen by aid workers aid staff nurses doctors who are on the ground who travel some of them for days because the roads were so bad to get here these are the people who managed to leave their villages when the floods came in crushed their homes they walked some of them for hours in a waves and waves of water mud and sludge to rita's facility this is the first time they're going to be seen by medical staff since friday when the floods actually poured in the ones who are seriously injured are we are told that the injuries are because when the floods came all of a sudden they crushed their homes or some were crushed underneath the rubble and
10:05 pm
then others were pushed back several meters when the water flooded in so they're the ones who are more serious they'll be treated to as soon as possible the problem is we've been told many many people are still stuck in stranded out there where it's hard for people to access because most of the roads have been damaged have been destroyed and people can access them the only way is through helicopters it depends on the weather of course the weather software has been relatively ok some choppers have been flying back and forth bringing people in art but right now there is no way of knowing how many people need help right now and of course how many people have been killed by the flash floods. be a use chief rex it negotiator says britain will only be allowed to delay its departure from the e.u. if it increases the chances of the withdrawal deal is ratified by the u.k. parliament the british prime minister is expected to ask the e.u. for an extension but least three months to reason mazed of austria has already been
10:06 pm
rejected twice by m.p.'s. if prime minister may requests such an extension before the open accounts are on thursday it will be for the twenty seven leaders to assess the reason and the usefulness for an extension e.u. leaders will need a concrete plan for the u.k. in order to able to be able to make an informed decision and the questions will be does an extension increase the chances for the ratification of the we do our agreement. there is hold up of how many can join us live now from brussels the whole debate you not going to automatically agree. to a delay. yes absolutely actually michel back again says that there's a lot of uncertainty now facing everyone involved he did say that voting for
10:07 pm
a no deal does not mean that that will happen and he also did say that asking for an extension doesn't mean that that would be granted either as you heard him there he was saying we need to know what is this extension for and what will change for any vote meaningful vote to happen next time around in case of a short short extension is us and then if a long extension is under the table then what will happen during that time window when we talk about long delay we're talking about something up to two years possibly so what will happen during those two years will do there be any significant change to the political process in the u.k. so there's a lot of questions on answered the e.u. seems to be frustrated we heard in the past we should ban is saying we heard from terrorism a what she doesn't want but we never really understand what she needs to make this
10:08 pm
withdrawal agreement be ratified by the house of commons now she hasn't yet formally for that extension that should be happening maybe or probably head of the e.u. summit which is later this week but i think before they take did their decision the twenty seven other countries they have to reach a unanimous position before they do that they want to hear from to resume and they want to hear. what will change and what is her plan and what the she had have in mind at the time he said money was very clear and actually also the head of the e.u. council said it earlier too that there at the end of the day yes they want to make sure that there is this divorce happens in the most friendly way possible but the e.u. at the end of the day has to look at this own interest and all of these delays and all of these uncertainties. point will go against the interest of the e.u. so it's a very difficult situation at the moment and you do feel that at certain here in
10:09 pm
brussels at least they are waiting to hear and to hear if there's something new and a table in brussels. been following developments in westminster. will to reason is right singh has written is in the process of writing to the head of the european council and just asking for an extension to our school fifty and a delay to bricks and clearly she's working on the assumption that that's going to be granted on some level but a lot of the music now coming out of brussels is to say why should we do it you can't tell us what you'll tentative plan is and certainly the french among others are suggesting they might not grant an extension asshole now just to extrapolate that that would mean that after the e.u. summit at the end of this week there would be one week left until the supposed bricks it dates of march twenty ninth to reason may would then have to come back as a parliament here and say this is your last chance about an ideal but even if she
10:10 pm
says that the ultra hard poll bricks it says will not vote for her because they would say more want to do that because we're out with no deal at the end of this week and that's what we've always wanted so if you assume then that even if she tried to bring a vote back the third time she would lose it's then the u.k. is staring down the barrel of either no deal crushing out with all the turbulence and economic damage that would pose or to resume a having to face the choice of abandoning bricks it's an revoking article fifty that would split the conservative party the government in half and probably would collapse the government so the decision of the european union is about to make is absolutely critical for the democracy of the united kingdom the future economy of the united kingdom all these things now are absolutely at a critical moment. i phone says has not accepted the resignation of a french cardinal who was convicted of failing to report sexual abuse on a geisha it's fairly bubble trouble to write to present his resignation to the pope

10:16 pm
christchurch this sitting of parliament was not about politics in a rare move the floor of the debating chamber was given over to people from outside parliament they were religious leaders who came together to offer condolences and prayers for the victims. we ask you to grant patience and hall to all the family members affected by this tragedy. or lot we ask you to protect new zealand and the whole was from such calamities i mean in an emotional speech the prime minister urged new zealanders to support the muslim community of memory and she spoke of the man alleged to have inflicted so much pain on that community but refused to speak his name he saw many things from his act of terror but one
10:17 pm
was no shariah. and this is why you will never hear me mention his name he is a terrorist he is a criminal he is an extremist but he will when i speak be nameless and to others i implore you speak the names of those who were lost rather than the name of the man who took them. he may have sought notoriety but we and new zealand will give him nothing. the l nor mosque where the first attack took place is still cordoned off a forensic examination is coming to an end and the focus is turning to cleaning before worshipers are allowed back in there's been some frustration expressed by family members of those killed about delays in having bodies returned for burial but that process is now under way and for now the area behind the cordon remains a crime scene but it's believed that in the next few days both mosques will reopen . that will be a difficult time for people like. who came to new zealand from south africa twelve
10:18 pm
years ago he used to pray at the el nor mosque but at the moment this is as close as he can get all of the people in the most state and prays this. welcome guest to new zealand and most of him so there's we are all places all forced to eat. so it's he said. that's an emotion that will be around for a long time yet as the people here struggle to come to terms with the terror that came to this city wayne hay al jazeera christchurch. thomas can join us now live from christ church in new zealand and andrew bring us up to date with the laces swats actually happening where you are right now. we're five days on from the attacks and you can see people are still coming in like flowers at the memorials the al gore mosque that one talks about his report there which is behind me down dean's avenue that remains closed is not expected to reopen until friday but lin
10:19 pm
wood mosque the second one that was attacked last friday that should reopen late on wednesday tsai progress there in terms of people still in hospital there are still thirty people in hospital nine of him remain in a critical condition and one talked about the relative the families in his report there as well on the frustration for the families is that bodies have still not been released of the fifty people killed just six bodies have been released by the authorities to their families so far further six have been identified and are if you like available for the families to bury as and when they see fit but that still leaves what thirty eight bodies that are not officially released and the reason the authorities are saying is no they haven't done all top cities but they haven't completed formal identification on those people to the satisfaction of the car enough and without going into graphic details that does suggest that the way in which the bodies ah and were left in the book murder means that they're not very
10:20 pm
easy to identify so very distressing for the families and the families who really wanted to bury their relatives as soon as possible over the weekend still here on wednesday on table to do so so some frustration that you see this prime minister will be back in christchurch again on wednesday she'll be going to a couple of different memorial events and hosting a press conference later in the day and overall we are seeing people generally respect her. opinion that the name of the killer will the suspected killer should shouldn't be spoken. you know she's taken quite a lot of strong line about basically not acknowledging his name just calling him the gunman she's also being quite strong on the issue of but facebook video that was posted by the gunman and streamed live. she has and that the big tech companies the likes of facebook google twitter all the big brand names if you like well they have been criticized of course but they are saying that they have now taken out every single iteration of that video and if
10:21 pm
they see one pop up they take it straight down again other websites have not been quite as fast and they're coming under criticism a lot of criticism though here of turkey's president or is it because he's campaigning in turkey and he's showing excerpts excerpts of that video at his campaign rallies to essentially with pop the feeling that islam is under attack and to get his supporters to vote for him there's been a lot of criticism of the way that he's doing that on the one hand you've got a video that these ilands prime minister is asking people telling people not to share in fact you said very explicitly that it's illegal to share this video and if you do you might end up in jail some one man here is in custody right now accused of doing that and on the other hand you have another world leader showing it at his campaign rally so a lot of disquiet discomfort about that here certainly in christchurch thank you. the protests in algeria show no sign of ending with medical students and doctors demanding president abdullah sees beautifully resign immediately they're also
